Lovely large park that holds the Dundee Flower & Food festival every year in September. Always well organised with plenty of signage.

Thoroughly enjoyed spending time in this spacious Country Park. The children's play parks are very extensive and parking is free. Plenty of areas for picnics. Kids can take buckets and spades to help load the bucket pulley systems. Take scooters, bikes or bread to feed the ducks, plenty to keep the kids occupied in the fresh air for a free,... More

Stopped here with my mums friend. I haven't been since 2005 but I have missed it. The wildlife centre was good. Animals seemed happy. It was the middle of July so they had some kiddies rides in the park which I thought was good. The new cafe was good and I enjoyed seeing the animals. The zoo could do with... More

This is the biggest play park we have ever seen. My 2 year old could have spent all day here! The Wildlife park is good value for money too. If only we lived closer!

We are frequent visitors to Camperdown whether it's for the wildlife park, play area or just to feed the ducks. Lots of open green space for kids to run around as well as the actual play area which offers different equipment for all ages. The animal park is always being improved and just gets better and better (although it's pretty... More

We went there with the kids for a day out, the boating lake was in need of an overhaul and there were no boats. The wildlife park had some lovely animals but was very run down with empty pens and lots of maintenance required. A lovely area which could be superb with some investment and elbow grease .

Then picked a spot and had a picnic and played tennis and football. Very spacious park and had loads of room... More

With all the space its hard not to find something to do. Take a picnic and a ball and play, spend hours exploring the playparks then go bear hunting in the zoo. We did all 3 and had a brilliant day out. The food in the café was lovely and very reasonably priced. The zoo was very well maintained and... More
